Attacking Adityanath, Shergill said, "The Chief Minister, the Health Minister, the principal of the Baba Raghav Das Medical College are all responsible for the deaths of the children in the state". The letter was written to the hospital authorities on August 3 and 10 informing them about the shortage of oxygen cylinders as Pushpa Sales stopped supply over pending payment.
The Principal of Baba Raghav Das Medical College was suspended by the Uttar Pradesh government in Gorakhpur for his negligent behaviour. "A final picture will be clear after a report on it comes." and he then he dismissed the report saying that shortage of oxygen killed the children. Mr Narendra Modi, Prime Minister is in constant touch with the central and state government and is monitoring the condition in Gorakhpur.
Most deaths were reported from the neonatal and encephalitis wards.
However, he gave no reason for the deaths.
Adityanath said that it is his fourth visit to BRD medical college since becoming the chief minister.
By the morning, when children had started gasping for breath, Khan instructed his junior doctors to pump oxygen with Ambu bags (small pumps used manually to aid breathing).
40 killed in Nepal floods, landslides
The Meteorological Forecasting Division has forecast moderate to heavy rains to continue across the country for the next few days. Floods and landslides triggered by incessant rains have killed 40 persons in Nepal, the Ministry of Home Affairs said on Sunday.
He added that the deaths "could be (due to) natural (causes), as many patients admitted at the hospital are serious".
Two days back, UP CM Yogi Adityanath had visited the hospital that falls under his Lok Sabha constituency.
The Congress on Sunday accused the Uttar Pradesh government of burying the truth by launching an "operation cover-up", demanding a Supreme Court-monitored investigation into the deaths of children at the Gorakhpur hospital. On Thursday morning, employees who handle the storage plant at the hospital from where oxygen is piped wrote to the Chief Medical Officer informing him that the stock of liquid oxygen was limited and would last only till that evening. Critics have blamed the oxygen shortage for some of the deaths - a claim the hospital has denied.
'The government will take action on the report of the magisterial inquiry which will be received soon, ' Adityanath said, promising stern action will be taken against those responsible.
Nadda has sought a report from the state health department into the matter. Talked to hospital administration about the problem of the hospital and its solution and also took action against the deficiencies.
